After two years of struggling on 12” format, British David Corney, aka Hyetal, has his first album ready. The havoc wreaked with his most recent singles on Punch Drunk, Soul Motive and Orca made this young Bristol producer one of the names to watch out for in this thing we call post-dubstep (not so much as a style but as a temporary space in the British bass music continuum). Hyetal, as interested in post-garage rhythms as he is in the pastoral electronica of Boards Of Canada and the evocation of the synthetic shine of the eighties (synth-pop, boogie and cold and sophisticated funk), has collected ten songs on “Broadcast”, a promising debut album that will be released by Black Acre on 2nd May. As an appetiser, “Diamond Islands” will be released on 11th April, a track sung by Alison Garner which will come accompanied by a solid remix by Boddika (aka Instra:mental’s Al Bleek).
Hyetal will be playing in Spain in April. The Bristolian will do his first ever live gig at the Barcelona edition of Electrónica en Abril, held between 31st March and 2nd April at the Espai Cultural Obra Social Caja Madrid in the City of Marvels.
